With apologies to C.S. Lewis
My dear Wormwood,
The Screwtape Letters It's hard to fathom, even by our standards of non-compliance with the Other Side, what a marvelous catch this John Shelby Spong fellow has turned out to be.
I doubt we could have created a more perfect model of apostasy and heresy all wrapped up in one man. For more than four decades, he has steadfastly aided and abetted our cause of disbelief. Atheists and skeptics are obvious sinners, but they are not a patch on a man who wears the cloth of his religion while defaming and declaiming it. Spong beats it to death with every ounce of energy he has while getting paid handsomely for doing so. Even our Father, who goes into fits of anger and rage when we lose even one soul to the other side, shakes his head in disbelief at the antics and utterances of this purple-clad mad man.
When we saw, some years ago which way the Diocese of Newark was going with that sodomite Crew fellow, our Father immediately put agent Slubgob into the diocese and thus began their slow but accelerating march towards us that has not abated in decades. That their churches are emptying and dying with some 35 openly gay priests in their pulpits is sweet music to the High Councils ears.
The article you sent us by that Gibson fellow of the Religious News Service was a marvelous puff piece, the kind of thing our Father warms to and welcomes for all religious leaders who prevaricate and ultimately roll over onto our side.

Go to the website & read the entire Screwtape screed! The comments are worth reading, too (one dissenter scolds, “you mustn’t make fun of an 82 year old man!”)
Very well done. Good to know there are still genuine Christians in the Anglican fold.
Even better, it's good to know that somebody had the good sense and literary appreciation to use The Screwtape Letters as a template for this excellent article.
C S*A) Ping!

Be rooted in Christ!
His Twelve Theses of unbelief have been nailed to his cell wall for when he arrives here, as soon he will. We especially like the one about the cross being child abuse. Hell is filled with child abusers. When he arrives he will have an opportunity to really mix it up with them. Our Father can't wait to see his reaction.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Spong baptized me..
Bravo! C.S.L. could not have done better!
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.” Romans 1:22-23
After the Donatist controversy of the 4th century the universal Church decreed that the validity of a Sacrament does not depend on the fitness or orthodoxy of its celebrant.
Or, to paraphrase Luther, "Baptism is valid even if a knave administer it and a fool receive it."
His name sounds like bad English & a broken leaf spring.
Sping! Spang! Spong! Spung! Sproing!!!
Thank you for that...and yes,sadly, somewhere I have the pictures..
